Freedom of information

At IWM, we dedicate ourselves to the care of the objects in our collections and to revealing the stories behind them.
We do try to answer enquiries about the museum and items in its collections, if the information cannot be found online. Regrettably, we do not have the resources to give individual responses to the thousands of requests for other information we receive each year.

We are sorry that we cannot help with enquiries about general history, family history and objects or media not held by the museum.

You might find the information that you are looking for on the pages above.
